Hidden twenty minutes outside the touristy areas of Ubud, Mandala Desa is a bungalow with five accommodation rooms of different sizes. All rooms have access views to the beautiful paddy fields. The rooms... More

To be honest, I don't want to post my comment here as I don't want this property to be too popular and too touristy. I wanted to keep it as our special place to visit again. But thinking about the owner Jacinta who was wonderful, I decided to post it as I thought she deserves it. We tend to stay... More

This would probably have to be one of the best places we have ever stayed. When we arrived to Bali, our plane had been delayed by several hours. I let Jacinta (the owner) know and she changed our airport transfer accordingly which was very reassuring especially because it was our first time to Bali. When we arrived at the villa... More

Wow. Jacinta (the owner) welcomed us with open arms and a yummy banana-watermelon shake. We stayed at the villa and we felt like we were on a honeymoon. The resort looks beautiful, it’s a small paradise in a quiet place near Ubud surrounded by ricefields. Iif you’re searching for a place to relax and get away from busy traffic etc,... More

It is just 8 km south of central Ubud (the resort offers free transport). The resort has a rural setting and is surrounded by ricefields and villages with all sorts of... More

We stayed for a few nights in the villa of Mandala Desa and it was really perfect. It gave a really relaxing and luxurious feeling. The guesthouse lies in a beautiful tranquil environment in the middle of the rice fields. The villa is huge, has an outside hot shower, bath and nice seats to enjoy the evening in a private... More

Jacinta and her staff made our stay and truly memorable experience. On arrival we were greeted with a cold towel and a welcome drink. Jacinta give us a quick overview of Mandala Desa and the surrounding areas. The staff at Mandala Desa were attentive but never in the way. Jacinta organised a driver for the day (10 hour) to take...

For our family with two children, we booked the Garden Suite and the above View Suite. We booked nearly one year in advance, and the email conversation with Jacinta was always very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very big, with large bathrooms, very good mosquito nets, A/C, safe, free water and nice views from the balcony. Pool area is... More

Mandala Desa is situated some way outside Ubud and is consequently very peaceful.The beautiful collection of buildings stand alongside attractive rice paddies, and adjacent to the village. From the moment you arrive, and are welcomed by Jacinta usually with a cooling drink, you are pampered, if this is what you want, or if you prefer you can enjoy the peaceful... More

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Mandala Desa. The staff really made our experience. They were extremely helpful and accommodating. Our room was also spacious and lovely, including a very large bathroom. The pool is small but clean, and the morning breakfast is delicious.
